Thank heavens for daddies that can come home from work when very pregnant home educating mummy can’t take it any more 😉 Today I was all done in by lunch time, to the extent that I couldn’t quite imagine lasting awake long enough to see the broth safely on the table, so Max came home and took over.
Josie, Maddy and Max spent the afternoon soldering circuits and making LEDs light up, with proper resistors and everything. I have no idea what they were up to, but it looked like fun.
Maddy absolutely loves stuff like this. There is something very satisfying about ‘real kit’ rather than kits designed to take the tricky stuff out.
Josie was more impressed than she appears, promise. She was very excited by the potato lighting up the LED.
Fran was home from school this afternoon and, having done all her homework ahead of time thanks to ungratefully received mummy nagging, she had the afternoon free to work on her new gym routine, which she is allowed to choreograph herself this time. So much viewing of Latin dance moves on YouTube 🙂
We managed to all be in the same room, doing physics, gymnastics and knitting, once I woke up again 🙂 it was nice.
